Both teams last met in Euros 2020 Championship which saw the match ended in a 1-1 draw after 120 minutes of football. Italy went on to defeat Spain in penalty shootouts and eventually won the tournament. Tonight's match is definitely going to be an entertaining encounter as both teams have a long history among them.
While Spain will be hoping to revenge the Euros 2020 Championship semi-final defeat against Italy, it is important Italy wins the game as it will benefit Chelsea football club the more. Italy national team currently has Chelsea's assistant captain, Jorginho as a key member of their team while Spain has the blue's captain as the key member of their squad.
Here are the two reasons why Italy's win tonight will benefit Chelsea more than Spain:
1. Jorginho's success is beneficial to Chelsea + Balon d'Or:
Jorginho was part of Italy's team that won the Euros Championship earlier this season and winning the Uefa Nations League will boost Jorginho's chances of winning the Balon d'Or. Chelsea in their entire history has never produced a Balon D'or winner hence why Chelsea fans are hoping Jorginho wins the award.
Jorginho faced the difficult task of beating Lionel Messi to the award but winning Spain tonight and subsequently winning the Uefa Nations League will boost his chances of winning the Balon d'Or ahead of Lionel Messi.
2. Jorginho to become Chelsea's most decorated player:
Jorginho is on the verge of becoming Chelsea most decorated player if he can win the Uefa Nations League and the FIFA Club World Cup this year.
Jorginho has enjoyed a successful 2021, Winning the Uefa Champions League, Uefa Super Cup and the Euros Championship in one year. Adding the Uefa Nations League and FIFA Club World Cup titles will boost Jorginho's CV and make him one of the most decorated Chelsea players of all time.
In conclusion, Chelsea fans should support Jorginho and Italy to win the Uefa Nations League.
